Please feel free to share. “Amazing Grace”
happened to me Wednesday morning after going to jam Tuesday evening. Now don't laugh, this was a mini breakthrough for me a strictly from music sheet tune learner!!
I woke up with a tune in my head from the jam session. I was able to play through it, slow and simple notes but YAY!! I figured it out without music!! Slow of course but I could hear the tune and play it - Reuben's Train. Funny thing though I could not think of the title of the song for the longest time.
Now to get it up to speed!

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius. BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.
Great when that ( or other steps ) suddenly happen ! I'm still trying to get the swung 8ths - followed by a triplet working flawlessly ! Been two days since I last practiced that ( it's at the start of the B part of Harvest Hornpipe ) E-A(swung) A,A,A, then F#-A (swung),A,A,A then G-A etc.... ha ! And today it worked ( I was permanently fighting with bow direction and just getting tied in knots....) ! I mean - it just doesn't LOOK difficult.... but I had a real mental block !
No one is laughing ! @Schaick - just smiling with happiness for you - we all understand !!!!!!! Honestly !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
